lyrics

How do sober people meet?
This feels impossible without a drink
Asking for water in a darkened bar
Nourishing my poor parched heart
My liver loves me but my lovers leave me
Another lonely year might kill me
Party girl left me for a party boy
“He’s a little more her speed”

“You need single malt courage to feel normal again
Just to say ‘hi’ to lifelong friends”

I’ve forgotten how to converse
I’m a stuttering wreck with nothing to say
It’s hard to hear from your old friends
“We liked you better when you drank”
Words are tripping over my tongue
I’m just mumbling lines in a marbled mouth
I’m making myself uncomfortable
“Simple human pleasures you will never figure out”

I can’t dance, I just stumble rhythmically
My balance is terrible but I’m not drunk, just dizzy
All my friends think I’ve fallen off again
But the music is so loud it helps me to forget...


The ice is melting in my glass
A promise held tight in my cold hands
Exile myself to a corner in the back
Anxiety is eating me
I used to make fun of addicts
Until I realized I need
Alcohol! Nicotine! Caffeine! Dopamine!
Just to get through a basic week

My heart is torn between depressants and stimulants
It might give out before the band finishes their set
But ‘til then…

I can’t dance, I just stumble rhythmically
My balance is terrible but I’m not drunk, just dizzy
All my friends think I’ve fallen off again
But the music is so loud it helps me to forget..

That I can’t dance and someday we’re all gonna die
So this gesture is useless but goddamn it I’m gonna try
Life is a fight to the death, you’ll never win but keep on swinging
Smile defiantly at the abyss and it’ll feel something like bliss
